Queens Of The Stone Age have shared "The Way You Used To Do", the first single from upcoming Mark Ronson-produced LP Villains.

"The title Villains isn’t a political statement," explains the band's Josh Homme. "It has nothing to do with Trump or any of that shit. It’s simply 1) a word that looks fantastic and 2) a comment on the three versions of every scenario: yours, mine, and what actually happened… everyone needs someone or something to rail against - their villain - same as it ever was. You can’t control that. The only thing you can really control is when you let go."

Ronson is on production duties, with co-production by Mark Rankin and mixing from Alan Moulder. Villains is QOTSA's first studio album since 2013's ...Like Clockwork and details of it emerge after a brief bout of teasing by the band.

Queens Of The Stone Age have also announced a handful of UK arena dates, plus a show in Dublin. They'll play Manchester Arena, The O2, and Edinburgh's Usher Hall (plus the 3Arena in the Irish capital) this November - find out more.
